Patriots, Brady close to deal to restructure contract - again

  • Derrius Guice

Washington has a lot of imperfect running backs, and only Guice was a potential three-down player. The initial thought was a sprained MCL, suggesting he'd miss a few weeks.

The Redskins selected the 21-year old running back with the 59th overall pick in the 2018 Draft and he was due to play a major role in Washington's backfield this season.

Several scouts had questioned Guice's durability going into the draft.

Now, the Skins will move forward with Samaje Perine and Rob Kelley, as well as pass-catching threat Chris Thompson, who is still recovering from a fractured fibula he suffered on November 19. He was set to be part of a reworked offense after the Redskins traded for quarterback Alex Smith and signed wide receiver Paul Richardson. Now there's a fresh wound - and a massive one - early in the 2018 season. But there are other running backs, such as Ronnie Brown and Edgerrin James, who were never the same after the injury. The Redskins were the most injured team last season when accounting for the impact of the players lost, according to Football Outsiders.

Israel strikes targets in Gaza Strip, 3 killed
Israel said the militants had fired on Israeli troops near the border, but Hamas said the militants were taking part in a drill. According to the Jerusalem Post , more than 200 rockets and mortars were launched since August 8, leaving 28 Israelis injured.

Brady's current contract runs through the 2019 season, and Schefter's report did not indicate that current talks would include an extension.

Guice, a second-round rookie, suffered the injury during Week 1 of the preseason against the New England Patriots.

In addition to Guice, the team says tight end Manasseh Garner, a long shot to make the roster, is out for the season with an ACL injury.
